Prideful because all he tries to do is chance Doodle rather than letting him be who he is . Not letting himself accept himself the way he is. Brother's pride pushes him to give Doodle an existence away from his bed, and it is his obsession that leads to Doodle's tragic demise. Brother's pride did create a facsimile (copy) of real life for Doodle, but in the end, it crumbled him, brought to its knees by pride and selfishness. Brother did love Doodle, but his ego overshadowed the fact the he was just trying to protect Doodle from a world that doesn't tolerate those that are different.
People with disabilities are no less than regular people and they deserve the same love and respect. Brother obviously does not understand this because he is constantly acting like he is bettering Doodle’s life when his intent is his own personal gain. Brother feels the guilt of teaching Doodle to walk for his own personal gain when he reflects, “They did not know that I did it for myself, that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” Brother finally learns what karma can do to a person when Doodle dies. The scene of Doodle’s death is depicted as “bleeding from the mouth, and his neck, and the front of his shirt were stained a brilliant red.” The traumatic experience of Brother seeing Doodle in such a state was when he learned the lesson of “What goes around comes around.” Questions and Answers: What do you think would have happened if Brother actually followed through with killing Doodle? I think Brother would live with the constant guilt of taking Doodle’s life.
The act of crying and screaming by Brother for the death of his brother Doodle is a pure tragic scene and by such scene the reader makes the readers feel that Brother loves his brother Doodle and for such love he tried to protect him from an outside world. Such ending of The Scarlet Ibis is surprizing for both the narrator and the reader. In fact, the death of Doodle after growing up is unexpected by neither the narrator nor the reader.

The evidence is undeniable. Doodle's brother was extremely cruel to him from the time Doodle was born. One would think that Doodle's disability would be more than enough reason for his brother to feel sympathy for Doodle; not this brother. Doodle's brother was so hateful toward Doodle that he stated his desire to smother Doodle with a pillow. Doodle's brother also showed his cruel, ill feelings for his disabled brother, Doodle, by showing him the casket which the family built
He loves Big Daddy and to tell him the news while he is on his death time would leave Brick to the thought of Big Daddy dying in disappointment through his son. Denial through himself is the hardest fight to win, and Brick is losing. He denies himself for the sake of others trying to please everyone around him instead of taking it and making himself happy. He does not want to feel the disappointment through his family, and he does not want to break Maggie 's heart. All the denial makes life harder than what it should be, and makes one and more people unhappy.
Brother is thinking that if Doodle can catch up to his speed, that means Doodle will be normal. Brother does not realize that what he is doing wrong, that when he returns to Doodle he sees instead of his little brother panting and resting, his little brother lifeless on the ground. The pride of brother gets in the way of accepting Doodle for who he is in the short story “The Scarlet Ibis”. Brother’s pride gets in the way, takes over, reaches its peak and leads to die or consequences. While reading this short story, the readers will enter the mind of Brother and see the progression of his pride and the effects of it as
His hand, trembling, reached out, and when he touched the casket, he screamed” (Hurst 2, 3). Doodle, having been treated as such by his older brother for the majority of his life, did not discern anything was out of the ordinary, as he had become accustomed to such treatment. Regardless, the sight of a coffin makes the average person uncomfortable, but the fact that Doodle had to see the one picked out for him specifically makes the situation much more obscene. Additionally, abandonment for a disabled child such as Doodle is the greatest harm that could be afflicted on him. Doodle’s brother would deliberately harm him, as he thought his younger was below him.
The Brother is put in a position where he is the only leader available for Doodle, even though he is extremely young. The parents, who would be leaders under normal circumstances, do not involve themselves or lead Doodle: “If I so much as picked up my cap, he 'd start crying to go with me and Mama would call from where she was, ‘Take Doodle with you,’” (Hurst, 2). They do not motivate Doodle, and they do not yield results that benefit Doodle. This forces the Brother to lead Doodle since he would “take Doodle” with him everywhere; the Brother should not have been forced to lead at such a young age. Although the Brother was too young to lead, he did help Doodle reach many accomplishments in the short term that could overcome the long term failures.
The Death of Doodle The allegory The Scarlet Ibis by James Huster is about 2 brothers., you should know That 1 brother is named doodle and he’s not that strong and his other brother is pushing him to hard he is the oldest and he does not like his brother (Hurst). In my opinion, I think that he’s not a good brother and is selfish.Furthermore, i think his brother killed doodle he did nothing for him when he called for help. (Hurst). Therefore his brother is not a real brother and at the end did not help him at the end of the story I believe it teaches the lesson that too much pride is bad because it can get in the away of your family and it’s not good for people that know you.
One day Doodle smiles at Narrator and that was the small act that made Narrator believe that Doodle was actually all there. Narrator is innocent of Doodles death, he was just trying to be a loving big brother and was trying to give Doodle all the experiences a kid should have. So far in the story, Narrator sees Doodle and notices that he is unique to the whole family. Narrator can tell that his parents think Doodle is going to die because they give him a big important name (William Armstrong). Narrator starts believing that his brother Doodle will die because that name only sounds good in a tombstone.
In the beginning of the story Brother wanted to smother Doodle because he wasn’t “all there”. Brother was forced to take Doodle wherever he went.This probably made him annoyed of Doodle’s presence.Brother wanted a brother that could do everything that he could. Brother also pushed Doodle just to make him “normal”.Brother said that he was ,”...embarrassed of having a cripple brother”,as stated on page 347. He even
